Summary "This essay represents the substance of a thesis accepted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Harvard University. Although chiefly expository, it is written from the standpoint of constructive criticism. The standpoint itself was earned during a long apprenticeship in philosophy under Professor George Holmes Howison, of the University of California, who, the writer thinks, is one of the most significant of those contemporary philosophers who have made personality the fundamental problem of metaphysics. That the pupil has since modified the viewpoint of his master in important particulars need not concern the reader in connection with the present study. The writer's total metaphysical doctrine, so far as he has any, is not obtruded here save by suggestion. All references to Locke's Essay, as well as to Berkeley's Works, are to the editions edited by A. C. Fraser, unless otherwise noted. All references to Hume's Treatise are to the Selby-Bigge edition. Other references are self-explanatory. Portions of citations are italicized where emphasis is desirable and where no perversion of meaning is involved"--Preface.
